What isn't there to love as you bite into warm crispy toasted bread (I used wholemeal/wholegrain), sweet vine ripened tomatoes, crispy salty bacon, smooth creamy avocado and finish off with a sharp vintage cheddar with spicy black cracked peppercorns. Thank you ratherbeswimmin' and Boomette for the recommendation, made for I Recommend Tag Game.

A very yummy grilled sandwich. I enjoyed this very much. It was thick and very filling. I used a homemade farmers bread, colby cheese which I sprinkled with red pepper flakes, since I was out fo Monterey Jack cheese and didn't want to wait to make it. Thanks rathrbeswimmin' for sharing a delicious sandwich recipe which I will make again. :)

So good! This has a nice little kick from the pepperjack and great flavors. I used wheat bread. Thanks for sharing!
